plausible possibilities. right now president obama can safely count on 201 electoral votes. that isunchanged from yestday. romney can safely count on 191. that is changed. that has changed because north carolina, and let me bring this up today here. north carolina was moved to the tossup category just yesterday. that accounts for the 15 votes that moved away. so where he had at 206, 206 to 201, now 191. and let's turn no to of romney who needs to win north carolina. he is still up in the olls by a gnificant mrgin, but four points yesterday it was more than five. we have that. romney would need also to win, just as before, the state of florida, 29 votes. let's get that. and he is up two points in florida. he also needs virginia where he is up by one point. let's go there. he is building 248. colorado, where both candidates are tied up right now 48-48. we will give that to governor romney as well. we will move that into his column, 257. president obama right now is up by two in iowa, what the purpose of this scenario we will assumed that governor romney wins. i'm sure you won't argue. he also
for watching. i'm al sharpton. "hardball" starts right now. >>> under the boardwalk. hurricane obama buries romney. let's play "hardball." ♪ >>> good evening. i'm chris matthews in washington. let me start with this. the hurricane and this president. hemingway called it grace under pressure, the highly educated call it good government. the american people who count the most call president obama's handling of tropical storm sandy positive. 4 out of 5 give him good marks as first responder in the crisis. the question before the election is whether this huge story about disaster and executive response is the last big one before we vote. is it the october surprise? the black swan that swoops out of nowhere and changes everything? as scarlet o'hara said, there's always tomorrow. chuck todd is nbc's political director and john heilemann is "new york magazine's" national affairs editor and an msnbc analyst. i guess that's my question to start, but let me give you this first. the president this afternoon bagged a big endorsement, new york mayor mike bloomberg, who is always interesting to watch.
is powerful. >> is there obama momentum right now, chuck? you score these pretty straight right down the middle. >> it's funny. i call it -- there's sort of the campaign insider's zeitgeist, if you will, and there's this assumption whether you heard haley barbour say it publicly, i talked to strategists on both sides, on the republican side worry about it privately and the democratic side hopeful for it. they think there's some sort of bounce for the president on sandy. nobody can point to any metric yet to prove this, but when you think about where things were a week ago, a week ago there was this assumption that, boy, all the intangibles here at the end were going to -- >> let me -- >> -- to romney. now it feels there's intangibles that may favor the president. >> i get the sense that the love of romney by the right and other political players is based on sand in this case. and guys like the governor of new jersey and all the voices out there that haven't come to romney's help this week, they don't love him enough to say, wait a minute, forget this storm, this guy is great. >> i do
romney at lunchtime, president obama, there right now. our chief correspondent is there as well. jessica, that city is getting plenty of attention today. at least the two men weren't there at the same time. that would have been a bit awkward. >> yeah, although they would have had an unscripted debate. that would have been unusual and probably good for the public. this state getting so much attention because it is one of those must-win battlegrounds, don. and it tells us so much about the -- the map tells us so much about where they're fighting in these final days. where we are right now is not ju just -- it's sort of a two-for for the president. not just fighting ie way, but across the river. the president fighting hard to hold onto wisconsin as a blue state. he is visiting it three times in the closing days of this campaign. if you count debuke, why when they're not taking anything for granted. and paul ryan, that's his home state. so his edition to the romney ticket has made that reach for the pthd. it's still polling to the president's way. it just shows you how cloesz this fight real
about the future, and i feel like barack obama is right or is mitt romney right we are not moving forward, we're moving in the wrong direction? neil: the wind has kind of been that the administration's economic back, do you buy that? >> yeah, i do. if he gets a lousy number that i think his goose is cooked. if he gets 8% or above, what a second, we are not moving forward. neil: what do you think about that? >> 8% or higher, yes. i think what we will probably see is an average job number based on the survey we saw today so it is not going to matter that much. americans have made up their minds. we suffered high unemployment for long time, but now they've made a choice will they get too much for four more years or will we make a change. neil: thank you all so much. the last big economic data before the election next week. and listen in developments like the blogs and all, it is all the talk what has happened on the administration knew about benghazi and when it knew it extended to report on "abc news," "cbs news," cnn, the daily beast, not as conservati conservative. the mainstream
. this october surprise has revealed a surprising new alliance. obama/christie. that's right. just listen to how the new jersey governor, a top romney surroga surrogate, heeds praise on president obama. >> the president called me. i appreciate that call from the president. it was very proactive and i appreciate that type of leadership. the president is great. i spoke to him three times yesterday pep called me for the last time at midnight last night. asked me what i needed. i said if you could expedite the major declaration without the fema mumbo jumbo. i got a call from fema at 2 a.m. the president has been all over this and he deserves great credit. i was on the phone with him yesterday three times personally. he gave me his number at the white house. told me to call him. and he absolutely means it. the president has been outstanding in this. so the folks at fema, craig fugate and his folks have been excellent. >> the president deserves great credit. he's been outstanding. a republican praising a democrat. but the powerful fact is this wasn't about politics. this was genuine thanks to a presid
states right now. first let's go to colorado where a new poll shows president obama and mitt romney are in a dead heat with 48% each. let's go to miguel marquez. he's been watching what's going on. what are you seeing and hearing? >> reporter: i'm hearing it's very much the same as it's always been here in colorado. people really turn between these two candidates. we're in suburban denver right now to figure out what makes these voters tick. >> this is jefferson county, it's one of the most competitive counties in this state. both campaigns are working this county very hard. it's because as little as 20 or 30,000 votes across the entire state of colorado could paint this state red or blue. that's as little as 1% of the overall votes statewide. >> so this is always the scariest bit of this. >> the first step is always the hardest. >> spencer has run apex adventure trips for two years. >> so this is the office. >> true. >> not a bad office. >> i like it. >> business has grown, starting with four guides, he now has 20. this year, the company's biggest. 3,000 trips. everything from pa p
. the issue. right now it is encouraging to see the ground game obama has been a lead he has. the acts of desperation mitt romney has had to engage in. lou: did we just transition from analysis time a raw-rob party for democrats? >> pretty much. neil this. i'm busted. lou: well, as robert is basking in the glow of something that is not quite, maybe you can give us a sensas to what you think will happen specifically. >> the same states we have been talking about for quite some time. remember that one out of every eight jobs, the halo effect directly to the other industry. obama basking in glory of the bailout, as he should. that is what is turning the election the way it is. lou: to you by these polls? do you buy that it's this tight? that these swing state polls are really the strong? >> well, the polls seem odd because we saw a big shift in the nationwide polls. after the first debate. but then we have seenome movement in swing states like florida and virginia, although not as much as we have seen. ohio seems not to have budget at all. other movement in states like -- surprisingly clo
chris christie has done the right thing, and barack obama is president, you do not' to overdue the praise. but, i mean, you are right, a photo of barack obama with governor chris christie goes a long way. he is liked by a lot of independents in the united states i think that, i don't believe that storm will make people decide. one way or the another whether they are for obama or romney, it gets back to the economy. and you know what would hurt, president obama, is if stock market tanked -- there is that. neil: i wish we had more time, rolling stone article, getting talk that president comment i'll cut to initial calling mitt romney, a bis bs 'er, were you struck by that? seemed out of character for a president we're told does not cursehat much. a lot of republicans that look at that as well say, well, it takes one to know one. >> i was in oval office interviewing the president, after we left that is when it happened much he is telling the story, he may have been trying to be a little bit hip for rolling stone. this past week he did not just rolling stone but mtv, and things may
tougher. and it's all about laerpd right now. and i hope that president obama and chris christie really by display giving an example to lawmakers who said that they were going to washington to work on behalf of constituents, because i think that we are seeing some real leadership right now, and i think that they can have an impact. and i think it would be good for constituents around the country now to ask the questions of those who are running for office, can you do what those two guys are doing? get your cell phones out? i want to know what you think. tonight's question. do you approve of the federal government's response following hurricane sandy? text "a" for yes, "b" for no to 622639. you can always go to our blog at ed.msnbc.com. we'll bring you the results later on in the show. joining me tonight, new jersey senator robert menendez. he, of course, was with president obama and governor chris christie today. senator, great to have you with us. you were right in the middle of all of those discussions today and getting up close as to what is happening. i understand that you're going
for being with us. "politicsnation" with al sharpton starts right now. >>> thanks, chris, and thanks to you for tuning in. tonight's lead, it looks like obama/christie 2012. president obama in new jersey, governor chris christie today toured hard hit areas of hurricane sandy. their survey of the devastation reminded americans of how many people are suffering from the storm and how essential it is for government to help them. and then governor christie, the man mitt romney handpicked to give the keynote address at his convention began to praise president obama. >> obviously i want to thank the president. we spent a significant afternoon together surveying the damage up and down the new jersey coastline. we were on marine one together and we saw an opportunity to discuss it at length. and then going over to the shelter here, being able to meet with folks, seeing the president and his concern. he has sprung into action immediately while we were in the car riding together. so i want to thank him for that. he has worked incredibly closely with me since before the storm hit. this is our sixth con
with his promises, and i it tell you right now that a lot of the promises barack obama made were in iowa. he didn't come through on those promises. i think that's a big deal. wisconsin, i'll be there tomorrow. wisconsin, i think, right now the momentum is with governor romney. we've done a whole lot of winning as republicans in wisconsin. you look at colorado. >> let me stop you in wisconsin because i want to read you something that david axelrod told "the daily caller." >> we expected wisconsin to be closer than last time. it is in our column now, and it's going to be in our column. >> yeah, well, he can say whatever he wants to say. i mean, they haven't been able to win in wisconsin for a long time. they claim that the obama machine was out during the walker recall. we basically crushed them in wisconsin. i have seen firsthand the difference between obama's rhetoric on their ground game and the reality, and the reality is they're not as good as they think they are, but overall besides the ground game talk, this is about the president's policies, the current state of the economy. ates c
. in china. this is really -- this is maybe the most right now. obama/romney stock away from the business and obama's people, made it clear they won't sell the remaining stake in gm. tim massen said the same thing, and the disposal agent. romney's camp indicated they will take gm immediately. they will sell that stock, so that's a pretty by near situation. you will get results from ralph lauren. will they be the next company that we thought was doing well and europe slowed? the stock went down 13 points, but that won't be enough. anything negative at all on the call, ralph lauren trades hard, up and down on very little volume. please be careful. there are huge numbers reporting, companies reporting on thursday, including exon. i think that will be just fine, by the way. i want to hear from little chart industries, the company as an important recommendation, and key to our nation's attempt to harness natural gas. it's a huge cost control for the whole conversion. we'll be on it. kellogg is a trade and there was a time when kellogg was consistent, consistent, consistent. i think you want to
the truth. this is just falling right into the hands of the obama campaign. you can't make this stuff up. but you see if he were to talk about the 1100 jobs that chrysler added in detroit, then of course, that would be complimenting the president on job creation and saving the automobile industry. it's a tight spot for romney and his surrogates. get your cell phones out. tonight's question, is lying the only way mitt romney can win ohio? text a for yes, b for no to 622639. you can go to our blog online. we'll bring you results later on in the program. i'm joined by a couple sources who know all about automobile rescue. that is former governor ted strickland of ohio. and also with us tonight is congressman tim ryan of ohio. gentlemen, great to have you with us. governor, you first. i can only think that this is a complete disservice to the people of ohio to go out in front of a crowd and erroneously put out information that cuts right to the fabric of what this election is all about and that's jobs. what's your reaction? >> my reaction is that mitt romney is a desperate man. he knows he's
, ohio, right now. our brand new cnn/orc poll shows president obama with a narrow lead in that state 50% to mitt romney's 47%. that's within the sampling error making it still effectively a dead heat. our chief national correspondent john king is joining us right now. he's in ohio as well. john, take us inside these numbers. >> wolf, they are fascinating when you look deep in this poll. the president you just showed he's here in ohio. governor romney will be here tontd. they expect some 35,000 republicans at his rally. in this part of the state i'm in cincinnati tonight. when you look deep in our poll you see this one will be fought out through the last poll closing on election night. look at these two candidates among independents. governor romney with a slight edge 48% to 46%. again, that's a statistical tie well within the margin of error. the auto bailout is one of the things the president thinks will help him here in ohio. you heard him mention that in this speech. look at this in the industrial northern part of the state, across northern ohio where you have many auto-related direc
, governor walker have a point, in 2008, president obama won by 14 big points. >> that's right. if you look back at wisconsin in 2000, 2004 two of the tightest races you can imagine. both of those cases you had a very, very narrow democratic victory. 2008 i think was an anomaly and then you have governor sidewalker's successful effort to beat the recall this year and you have some evidence of wisconsin voters listening to a republican message and most importantly this year outperforming the polls. governor walker did much better than any one thought he did. he was able to easily withstand the national attention and national money. makes it a target rich environment for mitt romney. although it has religio only bn the last couple of weeks he made a big effort there. they haven't put a lot of resources into wisconsin except in the last couple of weeks. >> the recall effort helped republicans because the ground game, obama's ground game across the country is better than romney's. and so i think because of the recall effort the republicans are running neck and neck. i think the republicans mitt
to really hurt president obama if it comes to that. but kristen's right, this is about the margins here. if north carolina, for example, was a good example in 2008. you know, obama won the youth vote nationally by 66%. in north carolina, he won it by 74% and he only won the state by 14,000 votes. so if he had won a similar share of north carolina as nationally, he would have lost north carolina. so that's why you see in a state like north carolina, for example, and ohio, the campaign being so aggressive with mobilization efforts on campuses because there's a cushion there, i don't think it will swing the election one way or the other on a macro level, but just around the edges. >> kristen, do you think the demographics shifts this cycle, particularly the increase in young latino voters will make a big difference? >> i think that you can increasingly not separate out the issues of young voters and the issues of the changing demographics in this country. significantly fewer young voters were white than older voters. the demographic shifts are showing up in this group. but you're still see

of citizens can participate in the process and every person can exercise the right to vote. the obama campaign thanks the republican governor when he did that and then with a boost from early voting, democrat barack obama won the state of florida and the presidency. oops. last year florida's new republican governor rick scott decided he was not going to make that mistake again. rather than expanding voting, the new one decided he would cut the days for early voting almost in half in order to make voting harder. look. at least that's how it works. long, long, long lines for early voting in polls places across florida except this year it's long lines with no relief in sight. we have been getting pictures ever since early voting started in the state. this is how democracy works in florida this year. look at this. get in line. wait and wait. wait an hour. wait four hours. wait five hours. yesterday florida democrats and the nonpartisan group the league of women voters asked the governor to do something about the long lines. they asked him to add a day of voting to open the polls on the last sunday
, short 30-second 1-minute adds, and they think that obama -- neil: they can see pot meet kettle; right? they can see hi hypocrisy; righ? >> they can. i think this happened with libya. they are seeing, wow, you are not here to protect this. the policies really do not work. i don't think the people are neil: interesting to me, and i don't cast on anyone, but if you make it a point and call the other guy a bs in "rolling stopes," make your you're not. be that as a may, a lot of money in the race. do you think mitt romney will be the billion dollar man? >> oh, absolutely. neil: where is the money going? >> on ads. i'll tell you right now, i did a conference call up at the hoover institute meeting, and i went out the back for a conference call fast with one of the donors in texas that gave to a super pac last minute saying if i give this money, will my ads run immediately? neil: planning a last week blitz of advertising, and by then it's too late? >> push it on to the edge. neil: every day. >> up to election day. it's never to late. the minute you think it's over, or in the bag, either way
and toledo, will go very heavily for president obama. cincinnati, where i am sitting right now, will go heavily for mitt romney. what we need to watch on election night is columbus, where franklin county is, because we've been seeing the romney campaign, campaign very heavily in central ohio, in and around columbus. we'll see president obama go there on friday. that's the area that could make up the difference come election night. >> okay. james peterson, last thought here. there is a pattern now of real dishonesty on the part of the romney campaign ads. they're out there saying that romney's been accused of outlawing birth control, contraception. nobody's ever accused him of that. they've said that he's not supporting the right of women to have it covered in their health plans. why are they putting out these desperate ads, like jeeps going to china and women are under attack for buying birth control pills. it's an absurdity. who would be so uninformed to believe these ads? >> chris, that's a different question. there are such a thing as uninformed voters and that's fine, that's part of
can't get through the debr debris. president obama: there's just no quit in america... and you're seeing that right now. over five million new jobs. exports up forty one percent. home values... rising. our auto industry... back. and our heroes are coming home. we're not there yet, but we've made real progress and the... last thing we should do is turn back now. here's my plan for the next four years: making education and training a national priority; building on our manufacturing boom; boosting american-made energy; reducing the deficits responsibly by cutting where... we can, and asking the wealthy to pay a little more. and ending the war in afghanistan, so we can... do some nation-building here at home. that's the right path. so read my plan, compare it to governor romney's... and decide which is better for you. it's an honor to be your president... and i'm asking for your vote... so together, we can keep moving america forward. i'm barack obama and i approve this message. the wheels of progress haven't been very active lately. but because of business people like you, things
been saying from the beginning. let's find out as we do every week where that stands right now. joining me is karl rove, former bush senior advisor in austin, texas. joining me from washington, democratic strategist joe trippi. look at the map. you see the info on the key. red, romney. blue, obama. then pinkish is lean romney. light blue is lean obama. the yellow states those are tossup states within the margin of error. reminder this is all based, this map you are looking at polls in the last two weeks. what has changed since last week. the last time we talked? >> first, we have now, record number of state level polls, 69 last week. 28 states. 12 states showed movement to romney and nine states toward obama. but only two states changed the status. one of the smallest numbers we've seen wince bebegan this in april. one not a surprise. tennessee state went from lean romney to solid romney. other is surprise. michigan, battleground state went from lean obama to tos tossup. that is a big shift of 18 electoral college votes. >> bret: of those, michigan a big -- >> michigan is a big, that is
in the final days of the campaign when romney would have least wanted him to. let's get right to it. i asked him last night about former secretary of state colin powell's endorsement of president obama. this is what sununu said and why it's creating a political firestorm. final question. colin powell has decided to opt for president obama again despite apparently still being a republican. is it time he left the party, do you think? >> well, i'm not sure how important that is. i do like the fact that colin powell's boss, george herbert walker bush, has endorsed mitt romney all along, and frankly, when you take a look at colin powell, you have to wonder ether that's an endorsement based on issues or whether he's got a slightly different reason for preferring president obama. >> what reason would that be? >> well, i think when you have somebody of your own race that you're proud of being president of the united states, i applaud colin for standing with him. >> with me now is newark mayor and obama supporter, cory booker. i watched you this morning. you seemed to be slightly biting your lip abou
. >> he said he was going to lower the unemployment rate down to 5.2% right now. today, we learned that it's actually 7.9% and that's nine million jobs short of what he promised. unemployment is higher today than when barack obama took office. >> mitt romney earlier today. you're looking at live pictures now from westchester in ohio, where rudy giuliani, the former mayor of new york, has given a blistering speech attacking barack obama. in a few minutes, he will be on this show live and exclusive to tell me why he feels so strongly why the president should leave the office. let's start with these long lines for gas. susan candiotti is at one gas station in new jersey. i have been following your travails for most of the day. you have been joining endless lines for gas in your car. most of the time coming up against a blank. where are you now and how does it all end? >> reporter: well, it all ended with us not getting any gas. it looks like a ghost town here. you can see they were open for a good nine hours. they had the supply but those lines just sucked it all up. too many customers and ev
